Custom Software Development

The Open Wonderland toolkit is designed to create special-purpose virtual worlds, much the same way as the “web toolkit” (including such things as HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, Flash, etc.) can be used to create highly specialized web sites. Almost any type of virtual world can be created with the Open Wonderland toolkit. With our deep understanding of all aspects of the Wonderland architecture, we are uniquely positioned to develop custom worlds and extensions for you in the shortest possible time.

Virtual World Design and Construction

We can assist with the design, and development of a custom virtual world to meet the needs of your organization. Our design services include refining user requirements, developing a compelling user experience, 3D modeling and animation, world building, and testing.

Consulting

Contact us if you need help or advice with your Open Wonderland project. We can assist you with topics such as thinking through the architectural design of a custom Wonderland extension, deciding on the best strategy for integrating with your existing software, or planning the most effective way to deploy a Wonderland service. We also have deep expertise in distance collaboration, distributed team work, and distance education and are able to help you develop an effective strategy in each of these areas.

Open Wonderland Hosting

One advantage of Open Wonderland is that it can be run either behind a firewall or on the open Internet. If you lack the system administration resources to host your own Open Wonderland server or would like to experiment with an installation outside your organization, we offer competitively-priced Open Wonderland hosting in the “cloud.”
